The DIRT Dad Fund assists another member of the D/MIRT Family in need: Terrel and Nicole Brown
through multiple surgeries and 7 lines of chemo, only to find that nothing is working. She has 2 new tumors that are growing and is running out of options. We were presented with an option for a the CHIPSA hospital in Mexico who have 4 different Immunotherapies that are currently not FDA approved in the US but that have seen high success rates in patients in Nikkis position. We have decided to make that trip and undergo those treatments, and we start them on the 23rd of this month. Unfortunately Insurance does not cover anything as this is outside of the US and not approved by US Insurances. The total cost will be right around $40,000. The funds donated from DIRT fund will go directly to these expenses that we will be paying in the next 2 weeks. We could not be more thankful for the support the community has given to us, and we look forward to paying that back once we are out of this period of our life. We hope for the best in these treatments and pray that they are able to find something new to work on her at this stage in her cancer diagnosis. Thank you again for the donation and support, please keep saying prayers and sending the positive thoughts, we appreciate it all!”

diagnosis. I know that in moments such as these, words and actions often fail us, so I can’t express my thanks enough for everyone at DIRT who has supported me throughout this last year – and who continue to do so. The fantastic support and friendship everyone at DIRT has given me along the way made an enormous difference. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. To receive this shield was absolutely amazing. Many thanks to all at DIRT and the DIRT Fund for such an amazing gift. I don’t know whose idea it was – but you guys rock. What a team!”

DIRT Alex Johnson and His Amazing Son Zeke
by covid being prominent in the community. The risk for lung complications increased due to his condition. We decided to decrease the frequency of going out in big groups, which meant canceling our gym membership. For me, exercise has always been a form of stress relief, so cutting that out and adding in the stress of managing this condition made for some tough times. Luckily six months before, I joined zwift as a means to bike without having to travel on the more dangerous roads during the winter. Soon I joined the DIRT dad group and quickly found a place I seemed to fit in with supportive and fun people. I did not tell anyone about Zeke’s condition until after his surgery, as I was afraid to be so vulnerable with a group of people I’d never met in real life.

community has helped me through my hardest days, specifically the Family Value Ride. Consistently joining every Tuesday built friendship bonds during the pandemic lockdowns through shared humor, laughter over Dad jokes, Discord calls, and Facebook messenger conversation. I know my relationship with the group has changed a little in line with the changes in my life, but I know they’ll be there for the first ride back, even if I’m hanging out with the Legendary Party Bus.”

The DIRT Dad Fund Helps DIRT Kirk Hawks Get Life-Changing Surgery
I wanted to express my deep appreciation for the DIRT community’s assistance with my nerve graft surgery bill. In a lapse of judgment, I had a chainsaw accident that affected my dominant hand. I am a math and sciences teacher at a high school for at-risk youth and struggled to pay the half down required for this surgery.
I have made many friends and would like to promote the DIRTDadFund for other members who need some help when life throws you a curveball.
